This week in Wynne’s World, we meet the gorgeous and talented New York based Filmmaker Shruti Rya Ganguly, who shares her favorite things. 


Helmut Lang Trench, Giullietta Dress, Heidi Wynne Isabella Wrap

WARDROBE STAPLES: Tailored, patterned, comfortable, collared and colorful tend to describe my favorite pieces - from a Suno shirt I bought recently in San Francisco to a canary yellow Giulietta dress, from a pair of beige harem pants from FabIndia to a light grey Helmut Lang trench coat I've had forever.  I’m looking forward to wearing my new Heidi Wynne Isabella cashmere wrap this spring and summer, especially when I travel.

CURRENTLY READING: I'm always reading a few things at a given time. Right now, I have Michael Hainey's After Visiting Friends, to a book on foragers in NYC, called Eat the City, to a book called Clearance and Copyright, which is a handy book for filmmakers.

Clarins, Nars, Maybelline

FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS: Clarins Multi Active Jour Moisturizer and Sunscreen, my Nars Jungle Red lipstick, Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Mascara, and Parachute Extra Nourishment Hair Cream

MUSIC PLAYLIST: I'm really into Kygo's remixes of Ed Sheeran and Passenger, the new CiboMatto album, and then I always have Patti Smith's cover of "After the Gold Rush" (originally by Neil Young) on repeat!
